Safer Internet Day 2021:
This year, we celebrated Safer Internet Day with the theme:
An internet we trust: exploring reliability in the online world.
The campaign focused on how we can know what to trust online, supporting young people to question, challenge and change the online world. It explored how influence, persuasion and manipulation can appear online and why this may happen. It also covers the emotional impact misleading information can have on young people.
